Good morning!  Sorry for the not so great picture of my layout.  I took this a while back when life was beginning to get crazy with my new job.  I am so glad to finally feel like I am in a routine that works.  

These pictures were based on an image my daughter found and then a card her friend in the picture gave her of that same image!!  These two girls posed for me just like the image!!  Love them and their friendship!!  I used the Fancy Pants collection Summer Sun, available at The Memory Nest.

And don't forget, there is still time to play along with the three challenge from September, October and November.  Link up for your chance to WIN!!!


Happy Scrapping,

Halloween Costumes!

Hello!!  I am still here.  I really want to scrap but need to be inspired.  That means I need to start visiting your blogs more often to get my mojo going.  I miss all of it: scrapping, visiting, etc.  Life has been busy - as I am sure it has been for all of you.  Wanted to stop by and share something that has been keeping me (us) busy...making our Halloween costumes.

Theme this year:  Birds of a feather, flock together  (wink)  I like the irony of that and tMN's logo.
Bald Eagle, Owl and Peacock

 My son created his own costume based on a character he made up
from a game he and his friends [pretend] play at recess.
He was thrilled to see his vision to fruition.

My mom and me
Check out my make-up
Thank you to ModCloth blog for the make-up tutorial and 
Gold Feathers blog for the costume idea!!

Happy missing you,
